    and it's unnecessary to say the original author isn't smart. Not very mature of this author.

    •  I agree with you (3+ / 0-)

      that was unnecessary. It fails whats come to be known as the "Wee Mama" test (Is it true?, Is it kind?, Is it necessary?)

      but still, the point remains. Without evidence that diary is a conspiracy theory, implicating all who disagree with it as conspirators.

    •  I'll agree a bit (1+ / 0-)

      Maybe the diarist went a little overboard by saying the original author isn't smart.  But please give this author a little room also.

      I share the authors frustration.  We so often point out the silliness of the Right Wing and their constant conspiracies.  I go so far as to call them names for being so completely irrational and violating the basic rules of reason.  I consider the kind of thinking that leads people to constantly accept things without evidence, to be very, very, dangerous for the future of our children.

      And then to see a similar conspiracy theory on the pages of DailyKos, can cause a person to sink into despair.
